A father of four young girls has been praised by social media users for sharing honest and unedited pictures depicting his family life and the ‘mess’ associated with it.
Simon Hooper, an Instagram sensation also known as the Father of Daughters, shares his life stories in a humorous manner with over one million loyal followers.
As a part of his mission, Mr. Hooper doesn’t believe in sugarcoating his father-daughter moments. Instead, he shows them exactly for what they really are.
In the household of five women and a single man, Simon was forced to learn things as he went. Fortunately, he quickly saw the fun side of it and decided to share his findings with the rest of the world in an attempt to break the idea of “perfect parenthood.”
“I seriously believe that all parents suffer from some form of mild Stockholm syndrome. Despite being oppressed & forced to work a servant to our pint sized captures, like a free buffet lunch, we always come back for more. This is especially true when I go away for work,” the father wrote under one of his posts.
“The first day I embrace my freedom & revel in that rarest of commodities – silence.
But within 48 hours I strangely miss being yelled at & forced to clear up other people’s poo and start to really pine for home.In my mind, I would return to 4 perfect children who would greet me with open arms & proclaim their lives were incomplete in my absence.
“The reality was 50% of my girls acknowledged my return & within 5 minutes my tired jet-lagged body had been transformed into fleshy climbing apparatus while i listened to a list of things that broke while I was away & now needed fixing.”
In another post, Simon joked: “Usually bedtime is like walking into a warzone, a warzone with low-level lighting, soft furnishings & bunny rabbits.
It’s a place where books are used as sharp cornered weapons and children break camouflage from underneath soft toys to lob bottle shaped milk grenades indiscriminately at people over 4 ft.tall. ”
